Jamey Aebersold Books, Sheet Music & Media
Jamey Aebersold has been one of the premier names in books, sheet music, media and educational tools for musicians since way back in 1966. Aebersold was a jazz teacher, and one of his students requested a tape of piano recordings to give him something to practice along with. This sparked an idea in Jamey's mind, and before long he had completed his first ever "Play-A-Long" recording. Just like that, a brand was born.
